Kanguq - Page 5

De la rédactrice / ᑲᑎᑎᕆᔨᒥᑦ / From the editor What a pleasure to continue to present our newsletter Kanguq! Gathering the articles for our issues has and continues to be an incredible source of learning about our cooperative movement. Since I began working for Ilagiisaq I have learned so much about its importance, especially to those who, like Bobby Snowball of Kuujjuaq, laboured, travelled, were taught, and who in turn taught fellow Inuit about how cooperatives work. In this issue we will hear in Mr. Snowball’s words how the Kuujjuaq Cooperative was begun and how he became involved. We also continue to learn about the history of our cooperative movement from Peter Murdoch, former General Manager of Ilagiisaq and friend to the Inuit. In this issue, I am proud to show how he was recognized for his life’s work by being awarded the Order of Canada. Sadly, former President Eli Elijassiapik suddenly passed away in March. We publish an article here in his memory and dedicate this issue to him and his family. Though his loss is mourned we take pride in the fact that he too had received recognition for his life’s work. He and General Manager Heng Kun received the Order of Merit that you can learn more of in this issue. I see the cooperative movement as a way in which community wellbeing can be developed and improved. There is much cooperation to be done in order to create a healthy environment for our families and our communities. As part of an initiative to promote healthy living, Kanguq has produced an interview-based article by Maata Amarualik of Puvirnituq, who shares her experience with diabetes. Be sure to read her article! In the last issue we introduced a new section to show off an age-old Inuit recipe, and we will continue to produce recipes that you can enjoy with country food. Enjoy your Kanguq! xu§ˆ3tgk5 evEx3gî5 Départs de groupe Group vacations ᓂᐊᑲᔭ l ᓂᐅ ᔪᐊᒃ Las Vegas l Niagara l New York ᓛᔅ ᕖᑲᔅ ᐊᒥᐊᔨᑲᓂ l Tél / scMstz : 514-457-2236, 800-463-7610 Téléc / hv4gƒDtz / Fax : 514-457-7724 voyagesfcnq@fcnq.ca Facebook: Voyages FCNQ ᓇᓪᓕᑳᕐᓗᑎᑦ ᕐᓂᒃ! ᒪᒐᔭᖕᖑᐊᑕ ᒍ ᒋ ᕕ ᕐᑐ ᐊ ᕆ ᕿᑲ le séjour Choisissez s! de vos rêve ! m vacation a re d r u o y Choose x3[b3iã5, É[sJ5ãl xgw8NsK5. s?5ti4 gnChx3[cMsE5y¡ Autres forfaits et destinations disponibles.
